The first two days of the new year were cold....followed by above normal temperatures through mid-month.  Cold air returned on the 17th and lingered for about a week that was interspersed with sub-zero morning low temperatures. 

On average...subzero days in January range from 8 days in the north...to 4 to 5 days across southern Nebraska and north-central Kansas.  This January was near normal for most locations...with Plainville and Phillipsburg falling short of their sub-zero average. 

Although most locations finished with below normal average temperatures in January...the only site to break into the "Coldest January Top Ten" category was Superior...where it tied with January 1974 as the 10th coldest January of record since 1902.  

Precipitation for the month was well below normal...with most moisture falling from events around the 10th... 16th and 29th of the month.  Snowfall for January varied from around an inch at Kearney and Beaver City...to 6.7 inches at Smith Center.
